70s tv for kids; real-life speed buggy?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have been thinking about and looking for a 70s tv show that is of a VW dune buggy that is intelligent. It may not have been a series, but a special. I need no video, but validation that it actually existed!

It is clearly a take on Herbie the Love Bug and the Speed Buggy cartoon, I think. It showed on Saturday mornings before Superfriends, at least in kinda' northern Ohio. Superfriends. Oh, God, there's another thread...

The show is with real actors... unless I have some sort of psychological issue and it was only cartoon.

To validate my tattered pre-pubescent memories, does anyone know about this show?
There's no there there. But, I'm working on it.

vague recolections.... but apparently my memory is no better than yours

Was this the schlep-mobile? I remember some kind of show with an intelligent car as well. ([edit] Kroft superstar show???)

As long as we're talking about Saturday shows with real life actors, how about the Shazaam - Isis power hour?

Wow, that's a vague memeory, too. I'm starting to think this show wasn't a long running series, but maybe on for a season? I remember that the buggy could shoot out rope (I think) and tie people up, it's hood could open by itself, etc.

It's probably pretty lame, but remember the day I sat down to watch it and it wasn't on again. I've never been the same...

Perhaps you're thinking of Wonder Bug from the Krofft Super Show? That's the only link I could find with a picture.

This show started to run when I was 3. Now I'm surprised I even remember it.

Tempted to get the video-- anyone seen it?
